Children's trusts have no effect

30th October 2008

A report from the Audit Commission says that the children's trusts created in England by the government after the death of Victoria Climbie have made little difference to children's services.

The trusts were one of the recommendations made by an inquiry into the eight-year-old's death in 2003 but the commission has found they often lack clear direction and have made slow progress. The study is the first independent assessment of the trusts since they were formally created by the Children Act 2004, though the government says the review is out of date.
